Overview

This unit introduces students to the practical issues involved in the design and implementation of enterprise software applications. The focus will be on applications employing 3 tiers - a presentation layer, an application layer and a data persistence layer. In terms of technology, both traditional desktop applications and web-based applications will be covered. Emerging technologies will also be discussed.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Practical and Written Assessment 20%
2. Practical and Written Assessment 20%
3. Examination 60%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Overall statisfaction Student feedback response The overall student satisfaction fell in comparison to past terms. This can be largely due to less participation of students in the survey; which in turn did not truly represent the entire student population. 1) It is to recommend that in-campus teaching staff orient students about the importance of survery and encourage them to participate in the survey. 2) It is to also recommend that teaching staff emphasise students to partcipate regularly in all lecturer and tutorials to understand and grasp technologies used in the course. Unless students take ample self-initiatives and drives, without a facilitator course like this can be difficult to understand and digest. [3] In future, the CC and teaching staff should encourage students to participate in online forum and discussions to harness engagement.
Moodle navigation Student feedback response [1] Besides the changes in assessment questions, all learning resources were similar to previous term. Whilst saying this, the course rating fell from 4.6 to 3.5. It is partly due to very limited number of students participated in the survey. [2] Likewise, in future, we need to look into ways and means to improve navigations using appropriate blocks, sections or hyperlinks in Moodle course site. [3] Subsequently, since navigation is a very broad term, specific questions in future surveys relating to navigation will help to rectify the problem.
Learning resources Student feedback response The course website provided all resources: lecturer slides, tutorial activities and instructions, instructional videos, and other supplementary technical documents for students to learn and apply all technologies covered in the course. While observing lab sessions in Sydney campus, students fully used those resources. In many occassions, students told that the instructional resources including videos helped them a lot to learn and apply the tools and technologies. Recommendation: In future, additional supplementary learning resources such as links to external reading materials and videos in Moodle site will help students to build more confidence on the technologies used in the course.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Explain the design rationale for n-tiered software architectures.
  2. Describe the industry standards that apply to the major enterprise software architectures.
  3. Analyse and evaluate the technology options available for each tier within a particular enterprise software architecture.
  4. Design and implement 3-tier applications.
  5. Evaluate emerging enterprise computing technologies.
